No. It has a longer barrel length. And it isn't a conversion kit. It isn't too expensive. Very fun to shoot. Very accurate.

This would probably be a better fit for the AR sub forum.

I believe Colt made a .45 AR.

Oly's pistol cal ARs look interesting due to their mags. They basically double as a magwell block. Oly is low quality but their pistol cal mags show some innovation.

5.56 is a proven round on hogs.

The thing that disqualified Oly's pistol carbines for me was the mag. Innovative perhaps, but I'm leaning toward valuing interchangablity between commonly used pistols and and carbines.

I'll be honest I've never been a fan of the 5.56 and the more I talk to hog hunters the more I see them leaning towards the SKS or AK with Hornady ammo choices just for the sake of penetration, and yes most of them have used the 5.56 against hogs, with mixed results.
While this is all well and good this particular carbine wont be used for hogs primarily, like I said before its a SHTF and fun gun. I'm set up to load 45acp all day on the reloading press so I figure why not.

That's cool.

Why not 5.56? Besides you reload.

I went traditional. Great gun with an amazing history. Heavy. Not super cheap but just a pleasure to shoot, tons of aftermarket parts and support.

I've seen them as cheap as $700.00. Mine is a Vector, I got it for $725.00 on sale. Great gun, super easy to break down and clean, fun to shoot. Women and beginner shooters love it, it has about as much recoil as a .22. Mine has the Hebrew markings for the fire selector.

One of my favorite guns. Sure, you can get a Hi Point carbine for $329.00 that will put the same bullet down range. But it's all plastic, the Uzi is all metal. The Hi Point has zero history, the Uzi has a ton of history, even if you buy a clone and not a real IMI Uzi. I just have a soft spot in my heart for the Uzi, I've wanted one since I was a kid in the 60s.

If you want to really learn about them www.uzitalk.com is the source.

Have you ever held the HiPoint I assure you it not all plastic.
